    The Wire: Season Five (see post #1 re: SPOILERS)

    If I recall correctly, David Simon elected to have this season shot 4:3 for continuity with the previous seasons, keep the look & feel the same through all five.

    Lost season 3 discussion....

    Hmm, apparently they will be replaying this before next week's episode on Wednesday night. I think I will wait to hear others' feedback before watching. From the description it sounds like there might be some spoilers, and I try to avoid them, even coming from the producers.

    Cox cuts a deal disabling Ad skipping on DVR VOD!

    It seems like there is some confusion here about VOD and playback from DVR HD. For example, on my Comcast box the DVR playback can do FF4, but for VOD it only does 2x FF. Also, Chris, without the cable box can you access VOD?

    Lost season 3 discussion....

    When watching it the first time through I thought I saw someone else in the room for half a second during the crazy cabin shaking part. So, I went back and watched the scene in slow-mo and there are definitely a couple frames where you can see someone sitting in the chair, looks to be an older...

    The Riches - FX Monday Night

    I'm a week behind on this show, too (although hoping to catch up in the next night or two). But I don't think the trailer park people were in on it. First, we know that the Riches didn't trust their acting ability so that would have been one more chance for them to blow the cover. Second, this...

    Ron, Please tell me we don't need to remind you about spoiler tags, too? What is the world coming to? ;-) Jeremy

    Lost season 3 discussion....

    That's what I was getting at. Does anyone recall what language the two guys from the end of last season were speaking?

    Lost season 3 discussion....

    Were the two guys from the very end of last season (ones who saw signal and called Penny) also speaking Portugese? When I first saw this new parachute girl, she looked South American to me and that was who I immediately though of, although I may be completely off since it has been almost a year.

    24: Season Six thread

    I thought Gredenko's agreement just said that they wouldn't send him back to Russia, not that he got full immunity. It seemed to me like he saw this as a convenient way to escape, and probably his last chance to do so. Plus, he probably knows that behind Fayed there are others willing to go...

    The Riches - FX Monday Night

    I caught it and liked it quite a bit. It has a very "Big Love" feel to it for me: family struggling to break away from a "unique" family/community and dealing with "normal" people. I'll definitely be tuning in next week.

    My Name Is Earl season 2 thread

    I liked the two sneaky reveals in the flashbacks, too: 1. Earl forgetting his peeing on the rug incident (I knew his Mom looked too old there) 2. Earl causing the Crab Man to get stoned.

    Lost season 3 discussion....

    If Desmond mentions that he was the crazy guy then Charlie might get it, but I would imagine Charlie remembers the experience more than that crazy guy's face. QUOTE: Here is my question. If Desmond is having flashes of Charlie dying, is he still living in the "past". i.e. has he had this...

    The Sarah Silverman Program

    I agree Chucky, the ending really saved the episode for me. I thought it was a little slower and not quite as funny as the premiere, but the fight and Sarah's lesson learned at the end, if you help people they will just end up trying to stab you to death, redeemed it for me.

    Comcast HD Actually 480p???

    I know on many boxes there is an internal menu setting (have to input code on remote, not user-accessible) where the cable guy can set the output for various inputs (720p, 1080i, etc). I know this because I have the same box in my living room (HD) and my bedroom (SD) and I watched him change the...

    Favorite 2007 superbowl commercial

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned the Garmin "Mapzilla" commercial. I thought that was by far the best of the broadcast.

    The L Word - Season 4

    I'm not sure how many people around here watch it, but as a reminder for us fans the new season starts this Sunday (Jan 7) night. They left a lot hanging last season so I'm looking forward to another season of this great show.

    Tina Fey's "30 Rock" season 1 thread

    Another hilarious episode, I am really beginning to love this show. I'm sure it will never happen, but I'd like to see Tracy Morgan get a supporting actor Emmy nomination, he just kills me every week.

    Tina Fey's "30 Rock" season 1 thread

    Didn't think about them all being non-laugh track, but absolutely looking forward to it. In my opinion, these are the four best sitcoms on network television right now, and four of the only five I enjoy, so to have them in one night on one network is great. Good job NBC.

    Nip/Tuck Season 4 ongoing thread

    Count me into the camp that thinks this show has completely fallen off. This weeks episode was painful to watch. In the "future" it looks like they threw they threw them into The Jetsons, I kept waiting for references to flying cars and stuff. That coupled with the ridiculous Annie character...

    Weeds Season 2

    I know this is a dark comedy, but that ending just seemed a little too bleak for me, especially since they're going to leave it there for months until the next season. Unless I am missing something, I don't see any way that she can get out of this easily, and if they are trying to be truthful...

    Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip - Season One

    1. I agree that this could be a realistic case of Alzheimer's or dimentia. Having seen this in family members, it is definitely a scenario where short-term memory is lost much more than longer term memories, although those slowly fade as well. 2. I think this episode may be a turning point...

    My favorite was when he called the guy with the bandaged nose "Chinatown."

    Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip - Season One

    "Why not just film it right away once they knew the error, edit it into the tape, and transmit it." I believe this show being broadcast "live" a la SNL has something to do with this as well. While showing a taped broadcast of a live show is allowed, it would be different to just throw in some...

    Lost season 3 discussion....

    I also think the Fountain of Youth theory is very interesting. I recall Juliette saying something about Dharma being a long time ago, or something to that effect. However, if it is true I would assume (perhaps others had alternate theories) that the magnetic field/button-pushing was someway...

    Nip/Tuck Season 4 ongoing thread

    Bob_S, I agree with you. I've been a big fan of this show (got friends to watch, own all the DVDs), but this season just seems to be a bit much. I feel it started happening last year with the Carver arc and how that got completely ridiculous, and now they have damn kidney thieves infiltrating...

    Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip - Season One

    I agree that we will not and probably should not see any sketches in the show, at least unless they relate to the cast itself. That is why showing the song made sense to me, it was about the show itself, not about political/social commedy/satire that these shows seem to do the most often. It...

    Nip/Tuck Season 4 ongoing thread

    I also very much enjoyed the preview, and am thrilled to have this show back, it is one of my favorites. The Carver started out good, but it definitely got ridiculous by the end of last season. Nicholas, you may want to spoilerize your comments about the season previews. Unlike some shows, I...

    Any chance of Major League SE?

    Does anyone think there is a chance of getting a Special Edition of Major League. We just missed the 15 yr mark, but I might be able to hold out until the 20th. This is arguably the greatest sports comedy ever, and I think we deserve more than just the bare bones release. I must have watched...
